DigDeep for a true pi­o­neer

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - The Guide -

DANCE mu­sic pro­moter DigDeep re­turns to Stam­ford for a show with a true pi­o­neer of the UK house scene.

DJ Graeme Park will be man­ning the decks at the Voodoo Lounge to­mor­row - so re­serve your ticket now.

Graeme grew up in Scot­land and af­ter mov­ing to Not­ting­ham worked at Se­lect-aDisc record shop sourc­ing ob­scure records that he later played at The Garage club in 1986.

He was soon in­vited to join M Peo­ple’s Mike Pick­er­ing at the decks of the fa­mous Ha­cienda club in Manch­ester, where he played for a decade.

In 1996, Graeme went into day­time ra­dio, but, as Graeme stated: “You can’t com­pare ra­dio DJing with club DJing. In a club you can judge the re­sponse – or lack of re­sponse – in­stantly.

In ra­dio, you have no idea if any­one’s even lis­ten­ing!”

It is this even-tem­pered yet pas­sion­ate at­ti­tude that sums up the Park ethos.

Graeme con­tin­ues to DJ all around the world and also remixes for many artists as well as host­ing his weekly ra­dio show.

Sup­port on the night comes from res­i­dents Steve, Rick, Pat, Andy and Ian and Dr Shrink.

Ad­vance tick­ets are avail­able for £5 by email­ing Pa­trick.u@ntl­world.com. Doors are from 9pm to 2.30am.
